Reliability engineers empower Xeros to build reliable world-class systems. If you want to build things that last a long time and that everyone relies on, this is for you.

Database reliability engineers focus on maintaining the many databases of Xero. We tackle the problems of big data scaling, performance, and availability on a daily basis to ensure that we're providing an excellent user experience. 

Reliability engineers work on incidents from time to time and work with product teams to ensure their products are built for scalability and reliability.

As a grad, you'll get to rotate through different teams before you choose a path to pursue. You'll get to work on our AWS infrastructure, taking on the solutions to our big challenges including automation, tool selection, and traffic monitoring.

You'll get trained on the job, so don't worry if you're not a database or SQL whizz – if the work interests you, then you should apply!

You'll be self-driven, inquisitive, enjoy collaborating with different teams across the business, and thrive on technical challenges. We welcome grads with any qualification, not necessarily a university degree.

Ideally, you'll:

  • like working with servers or data, and if you like to script or write code then that's a great combo
  • love problem solving, thinking on your feet, helping other people and taking the initiative 
  • enjoy investigating why things work, not just how they work
  • enjoy building solutions for other Xeros, removing pain points and making their lives easier

Preparing to apply:

We'll need a copy of your CV, as well as links to any online projects, websites, GitHub/Stack overflow, or anything else you want to show us.

We'll also need a copy of your academic transcript – we know it won't be complete until the end of the year, so just send us everything so far.

Instead of a cover letter, in your online application, we'll ask you to tell us a bit about yourself and your thoughts on technology.

You need to be a citizen or permanent resident to apply. We'll need a copy of your passport and visa for a start date in Feb 2021.
